I have been here and will always be here. I have experience alot within this few years i have leaved. To be alive is sweet, to make positive impact is eternal.

Start from were you are,everything is possible as long as your mindset is positively connected.

Parents might not give all a girl wants but the girl can be what she wants. Believe in yourself, remove fear and conquer!

I wish she has a smart phone to join worldpulse. This young lady Lea was 16 when she was married to this elderly man because her parents had borrowed money from the elderly man and couldn't pay so the man married Lea because her parents couldn't pay back the loan they received.
Beautiful and hard working Lea couldn't further hee education eventually became a mother of 3 when her husband began to mal-treat her until she ran and relocated my area.
Although life hasn't been easy on her financially but she is happy staying alot. This Lea is 42 years old now.

Hello, KateMiri,

Thank you for sharing with us a motivational message. I hope Lea can own a smart phone, too, so she can also share her stories on World Pulse.

Thank you for sharing!

Hi Kate,

How are you doing, dear? Thanks for sharing your powerful and wise words and post. Have you always had a positive mindset? And, if not, why did you decide to change it?

Hope you have a great weekend!
